Indonesia 2009 印尼

Indonesia is covered in green
From the very far to the very close, and the very high to the very low
Remember green is the only color our Mother Nature sends her love to you

印尼滿載著的 都是綠色
遠的近的 高的低的 也是綠色
就是大自然要給你戀上的唯一顏色

Itinerary 行程 - Bali > Jakarta

I saw numerous motor bikes waiting for their next customers once I stepped out of the Denpasar airport when I arrived in Bali. I was kinda daydreaming when all of a sudden a muscular and dark-skinned motorist grabbed my backpack and signaled me to go, without any hesitation I leisurely hopped onto his bike, and then followed his not so powerful engine to head to the town centre. Along the way, I held very tight the belly of this unknown motor driver, that we shuttled through endless alleyways and passed by countless market stools, again and again, repeatedly and repeatedly, we kept shuttling through and passing by, still he couldn't find the place that I needed to go! Of course I was on fire, and this motorist was alerted of my anger, he then quickly made a call to ask for the direction, and shortly after I finally arrived at my lodging, a place that meant to be so close but we searched for so long.

My lodging Hidden Oasis Bed & Breakfast is an exotic building situated at the heart of Kuta, the bustling district of Bali, everywhere including the beach and the market could be reachable just by a short walk, it is indeed a pretty good choice for a cost of just around USD20 per single room per night. Kuta is definitely a busy tourist district, that all you see is packed crowd and all you hear is loud sound, in all places at all time locals keep on selling you all kinds of services or products, including manicure and massage and tattoo and more and more and more of you could ever thought of. Don't ever ask for tranquility here as it is impossible to find any.

一踏出巴里島 (Bali) 的 Denpasar 機場,就看見數十輛機車停泊,等候接客。正當我還在迷惑,不知去向之際,一位黑黑實實的機車大哥二話不說就把我的背包拉起,並沒感覺什麼不對勁的我隨即悠悠然然的上了他的機車,風馳電掣前往市中心。沿途,我抱著那位陌生的印尼大哥,穿過無數的窄路小巷,經過許多的特色攤檔,重覆又重覆的穿梭,不斷又不斷的經過,就是這樣,不斷的重覆穿梭經過,那個大哥還未找到我想要去的地方!最後,我當然發火,大哥也不敢蹉跎,立即拿起手機致電旅店詢問方位詳情。結果,我們秒速到達那個找了很久卻又理應很近的地方。

我租住 Hidden Oasis Bed & Breakfast 是一所充滿異國風情的旅店,位於巴里島最熱鬧的 Kuta 區,無論海灘市集都可以徒步到達,單人房每晚就只需大約 USD20 的價錢,絕對是個不錯的選擇。在 Kuta 這個旅遊區,不論黃昏早晚, 到處都是人群,到處都是聲音。無時無刻都會有人在你耳邊銷售著不同的服務又或產品,美甲的按摩的刺青的又或是其他的等等等等。如果你想要寧靜,是萬個的不可能。

I traveled to the central part of Bali the very next day to walk away from the hustle and embrace the nature. First I went to the Monkey Forest in Sengeh to say hi to the little animals, then I arrived at Ubud to see the emerald green rice terraces, after that I visited Pura Luhur Tanah Lot, the very famous ancient temple that was being built on the top of a big rock by the seaside, and finally I dined with the romantic sunset at the very tranquil Jimbaran Beach.

為了遠離煩嚣,翌日我前往巴里中部,走進大自然。首先上了 Sangeh 的聖猴森林公園跟小動物問好,再到 Ubud 嚐茶欣賞翠綠梯田,然後拜訪建於岸邊大岩石上的海神廟 Pura Luhur Tanah Lot,最後踏進寧靜的金巴蘭海灘 Jimbaran Beach 與金黃日落浪漫進餐。

Although I did not stay long in Jakarta, I must recommend you my lodging Jakarta Bed & Breakfast for the sake of it. To be honest, the place is a bit old, but the deco is very stylish, it is indeed a very big mansion with a botanic garden and a swimming pool. Plus, the host is kind and funny, he is a retired diplomat who has a lot of interesting life stories to tell. In addition, the traditional Indonesia homemade cuisine prepared by the staffs was delicious, I enjoyed it a lot. The entire course of this genuine Indonesian experience costed me only around USD20 per single room per night, bet you must pay it a visit even if you only stayed in Jakarta for a night.

雖然我沒有在雅加達 (Jakarta) 這個首都城市逗留多少時間,但是我必需為你推介我所入住的旅店 Jakarta Bed & Breakfast。老實說,它是有點陳舊,但裝修獨特非凡,擁有前後花園,加上私家泳池,確是一幢豪宅。另外,主人是前外交官,親切有禮,與大家談笑風生。再者,家僕所煮的傳統印尼餐更是美味非常,令我再三回味。這套真正的印尼體驗,每個房間每晚也不過是大約 USD20 的價錢,要是你要到雅加達,絕對應該考慮這裡作為你的景點之一。

The traffic of Jakarta is horrible, just horrible, that you could hardly see any vehicles moving on the very busy road. Even though the very kind hostess successfully dropped me off at one of the airport shuttle station on time but my mind was still kinda unsettled due to the long drive. However, I started to feel calm and the world around me seemed to settle down when a street musician played us a soothing song inside the shuttle bus. Indeed, music always inadvertently touches one's heart.

雅加達的交通實在是非常混亂,非常擠塞。雖然好心的前外交夫人成功把我送到某個機場巴士上落點,但我還是感到有點動魄驚心。然而,當一位街頭歌者在車廂內表演過後,確又好好的緩和了我的心情,以及周遭的忙亂氣忿。音樂,總是不經意的觸動人。
